New York Packaging was founded in 1959 as one of the first companies to extrude polyethylene film in the U.S.A. Several decades ago, the company evolved into a pure-play distributor by forming alliances with many of the plastic manufacturing pioneers of Asia. Today, New York Packaging has an innovative global sourcing and distribution model, along with patented products such as the Redi-Bag.  The company sells its portfolio of flexible packaging solutions to blue chip customers in grocery, food service, e-commerce, and retail across North America, Europe, and Asia.  New York Packaging is headquartered in Long Island, NY.

In 2015, BASE acquired the company in partnership with the Founder / CEO.
